I am a board certified psychiatrist through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I completed my adult psychiatry residency at the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and my fellowship training in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Washington/Seattle Children’s hospital in Seattle, Washington. I’m a member of various professional organizations including the American Psychiatric Association and the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. Please click here to view my CV.
In addition to my training in adult and child & adolescent psychiatry, Psychodermatology is my area of specialization and research. Disorders such as trichotillomania, skin picking, and psychogenic itching are some of the issues in this field that I am deeply interested in. Along with medication management, I utilize other modalities of treatment such as cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, supportive psychotherapy, and habit reversal therapy.
